Our blog is top 25 in Singapore ?

Thanks to TheSmartLocal for spotlighting our blog. It is both a humbling and joyous occasion (at least online), to be acknowledged as “popular” haha 🙂

Read TheSmartLocal’s summary of Top 25 Popular bloggers Singapore here.

If this is the first time you are visiting Sengkang Babies blog, do pop by 盛港宝宝’s bio first, our Motto “We bring you Fun!” must have interests a lot of visitors 🙂

Alexa indicates we are near the top, because of our increasing “unique” visitors over the last three months. If we compare solely by ranking, we might be somewhere in the top 100 or 200, which is still a remarkable achievement.

** Daddy is trying to say there are a lot of GooD Awesome Blogs in Singapore !

Our blog receives 1000 hits every day, of which 75% are unique visitors. That 3,000 spike is due to the haze. Our Travel itineraries are very popular with families during the holidays.

To thanks our fans and readers, we can only continue to work harder, to tell more people that Singapore is not boring. The next project for us will be on Photography, we hope to share our experience on how not to be the Missing “Photographer”. Every family should have nice portraits 🙂

Daddy cannot wait to share this news with the kids 🙂

Daddy bloggers Singapore

Father’s day is coming, and Business Times did a coverage on “Daddy
bloggers Singapore”.

Titled “The Daddy Connection”, the paper tries to understand the psych behind Daddies blogging. How do we differ from Mummy bloggers. Daddy highlighted that SengkangBabies standout because we got four kids, all seem to enjoy the Fun outdoor, and being cute does helps 🙂

We are proud to be featured together with other Daddy bloggers Singapore, Edmund (EdUnloaded) and Winston (Dear Xander).
Hopefully, more blog coverage will allow us to help promote campaign awareness,
example graciousness and charity.

What if the man becomes a Stay-At-Home-Dad?

This week, Mummy (CEO and COO of SengkangBabies) is enjoying her Tom Yam in Bangkok with Boon Yi. Daddy has been delegated to keep the house in order until Mummy comes back.

A timetable tells us how Mummy runs our family with clockwork precision and efficiency.

Daddy can handle the kids relatively well, and he thought he understands how challenging it is to be a home-maker, that is until he steps into Mummy’s heels.

Making milk, showering, diapers, fetching the kids from school. Tasks are straightforward but it is a logistics-project to ensure everyone meet the timelines.

Between, we are not talking about house keeping, laundry and cooking yet.
HENG1 ah (lucky), 奶奶 is chipping in to help 🙂

… just imagine, how does nursing mums survive and thrive with lack of sleep? Dads can reduce some of Mummies’ stress, please read our Breastfeeding post.

If any parent ever wish to test their patience, try homework with kids haha. 陪读爸爸 is a tough job for Daddy. Mummy told Daddy to spot-check the student handbooks, in case kids decide to KENG1 (malingering). Yes, our kids are experts at bargaining and twisting their way out of homework and chores.

On the other hand, Mummy’s workload doubles whenever Daddy goes on business trips or even holiday reservist. Mindef can definitely help by allowing Dads to book in later (8 or 9am will be pro-family gesture) so that we can help to bring the kids to school. When Daddy last check, Singapore still need to make more babies.

Did you hear about the recent announcement that Daddies’ competence will be measured? What is BFI (Better Fathering Index) HUH? Daddy Andy need not be Singapore’s best Daddy, he just need to be the kids’ dependable Dad. Hopefully, the feeling is mutual :p

Daddy recommends…
All Mummies out there, book a 4D3N vacation with your girlfriends, and dump the husband behind. This is one sure way for the man to improve his parenting skills, and appreciate his 老婆 (wife) more :p

Here comes the dilemma, Daddy miss the kids when he is working, but to soak in all the family chores, and face the kids for three full days, is another story 🙂
Given a choice, Daddy would prefer to retain his Ministry-of-Fun portfolio, rather then to stay home and mind the kids.

Verdict : Will Daddy support Mummy for another 4D3N trip again? YES YES YES.

Daddy is amazed how Mummy bloggers still find time and brain-juice to blog at the end of the day! Daddy would like to take this opportunity to salute all the Stay-at-home-Mummies, your sacrifices are helping to build a stronger family! KUDOs !

For the guys out there, grab your Mrs, hug her, give her a peck, say some “sweet nothings”. If you need more parenting tips and gossips’ from Daddies’ perspectives, drop by Ai Sakura’s Celebrate Fatherhood series.
BlogFather Winston has a summary of everyone who has spoken out about the BFI.

… meanwhile, Daddy is counting down to reinforcement Mummy’s return.
